Imagine a world without the Basenji…
(I know, horrifying!)
What breed of dog would be by your side right now?
I will probably always have a soft spot for the Shiba Inu, since the breed is my real "first" -- and boy did this guy mentally prepare me for challenges with any and all future dogs. Maybe I would have explored more of the other Japanese breeds or adopted another Shiba if we hadn't lucked into finding Bowpi.
I think some of the other sighthounds are fascinating, but haven't had much experience with them. I've gotten to know several greyhounds that I just adored, and seriously hope to adopt one or two in the future.
Salukis and whippets are beautiful too, but I haven't met as many.
Generally, I like medium-sized spitz breeds, sighthounds and pariah dogs.
What about you?
